Hussmann parts are simple to order and provide like-for-like replacement of existing parts, keeping your stores looking great and your equipment operating at peak performance.
Inspiring energy efficiency and sustainability
As the food retail arm of Panasonic, we share the global technology leader’s mission of moving lives forward. We believe that technology should inspire and amaze us, and we are always working to find new solutions that bring about a better world.
Recent Panasonic research shows that although the food retail sector has been slower than other industries to adopt disruptive technologies, it is poised for change. In fact, some companies are already using technology to maximize efficiency and improve the customer experience.
Among the next-gen solutions being explored are renewable energy, AI, robotics and autonomous – 4 of the 10 leading disruptive technologies expected to generate trillions in economic value in the decade ahead. Panasonic is deeply engaged in these technologies. We believe that connecting them into integrated solutions is essential to creating entirely new experiences.
This includes developing innovations that reduce our carbon footprint and protect our environment.
In all areas of our company, from the equipment we design and build, to the services we provide, to our internal processes, we are focused on improving energy efficiency and reducing refrigerant emissions in our display cases and refrigeration systems.
As more people enjoy modern grocery shopping globally, up to a quarter of greenhouse gases could come from refrigeration technology. That’s why we’re investing in natural refrigerants, as well as energy-efficient products that effectively merchandise healthy food choices in stores. Recently, we introduced refrigerated cases with 99% less environmental impact.
Hussmann has been leading the way in energy efficiency for decades, and we offer retail optimization services to help our partners lower energy use and costs throughout their operations. We proudly support the U.S. EPA GreenChill Partnership in its efforts to recognize food retailers that reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.
